The inaugural Jack Daniel’s National BBQ Championship will be held throughout New Zealand in eight separate events in seven different cities. To win the overall BBQ Championship, an eligible team must have competed in a minimum of three events. An eligible team can have 1, 2, 3 or 4 members, having 5 or more members in a team will result in the team being disqualified.
Each event will have a maximum of 30 teams competing, so the sooner you enter your team the better your chances of competing. The Jack Daniel’s National BBQ Championship is sanctioned by the Australasian Barbeque Alliance (ABA), which means the Championship will be run to the same rules as those held across the Tasman. To help oversee and judge entries, two ABA Judges will be present at all events. Please note that the Promoter, Jack Daniel’s NZ Ltd, reserves the right to change competition details and rules prior to and during each event.
